It means a lot to follow Jesus and the disciples caught a glimpse of what Jesus was about to show them. Whether we do or do not recognise that prophecy has been fulfilled, God tells us that Jesus is His Son and that He is very pleased with Him, just as He demonstrated when being baptised by John the Baptist (Matthew 3:13-17).
Jesus comes to us as a friend, albeit a highly anointed One. When He approaches us, will we be terrified of Him or will we embrace Him? He says, "Get up. Don't be afraid."
Let us approach Him as He allows us to.
